'Late night soulfulness is the order of the day (night) on this new track from R’n’B outfit Lyra on their new single ‘S.T.A.Y.’. The funky guitars and tight-as rhythm section keep things moving nicely before the luscious, multi-layered vocals join in to seal the deal as you make your moves on that special someone on the dancefloor. If you’re in to the likes of Joss Stone, Sugababes at their more mellow, Eternal or En Vogue then this will be perfect for you and if you’re not then why don’t you pour yourself a glass of wine and have a listen anyway – you clearly need to unwind.'
Lyra is a London five set Neo Soul - Electronic pop group combining epic and sweeping vocals, driving and rhythmic guitar lines, with a euphoric rhythmic sound. Lyra have been hard at work shaping a style and groove that can’t be ignored. In an age of recording artists, it is truly refreshing to find a band that is as good, if not better live than on recording.Lyra comprises Paige Ellis's drum beats with funk edge aplenty, George Price's smooth base lines, James Skingle's R+B licks to his heavy solos, Ejike Nnodi's Jazzy Keys, and Jenna Naylor-Tymon's soulful yet haunting vocals. Their neo-soul originals ooze an irresistibly euphoric rhythm.
